Most cruise ships portray an image of opulent elegance in the majority of their interior decorating. The brand new Carnival Breeze has a whole new look. Now that it is in America, it home ports in Miami for Caribbean cruises. So it is only fitting that the decor on most of the ship sports a Caribbean casual look.
Some of the lights onboard, like the ones in the Lido Marketplace Buffet area, are designed so the light they cast resembles sunlight filtering through palm trees. The seating area has a very beachy look complete with umbrellas and trees.
Up one floor from the main Lido Deck, the Cucina del Capitano pasta restaurant has a look of old world Italy.
The hallways between passenger cabins have a variety of scenes from a Caribbean island paradise. Even the doors have a new look about them.
The atrium has a much more casual look than most ships. It has a bandstand on top of the bar, and colorful floating lanterns in the open area by the glass elevators. The open area is smaller than on most vessels.
The colorful lanterns look quite different when viewed from above, below, or beside them.
The Ocean Plaza area on deck 5 has a casual inviting look. People enjoy hanging out there for things like trivia contests, dance lessons, and music from bands.
The Ovation Theater also has a more casual look than the main theater on most ships. It has a design repeated throughout the carpet, curtain, and even the lights on the walls.
I think it is supposed to be some sort of flower, but it makes me think of brooms. The sort witches ride in stories like Harry Potter. I heard other people commenting that it reminded them of upside down bells.
The open and inviting look of most of the ship carries though to the full service sushi bar. Sushi here comes with a bit of extra cost.
The main dining rooms manage to maintain an elegant, yet relaxed look without the ornate scrollwork normally adorning the walls in formal cruise ship restaurants.
The casual elegance continues in the decor of the Fahrenheit 555 steak house. This extra charge restaurant also includes an open galley where guests can watch the chef cook their meal.
The Red Frog Pub decor is the epitomy of Caribbean casual with palm trees and nautical adornments of all sorts. It serves great food too, hot fresh and made to order for a very nominal fee. The Red Frog Pub sits on deck 5, not to be confused with the Red Frog Rum Bar on the Lido.
Deck 5 also has a lanai which runs around the whole outside of the ship. On sea days, Fat Jimmy’s BBQ serves excellent pulled pork sandwiches and other barbeque fare under the yellow umbrellas. No extra fee there.
Kids need their space even on vacation. On the Breeze the teens will find it in Club O2 with a dance floor where the lights change color.
The spa uses pastel colors in soothing shades to help with the relaxed atmosphere.
Outside in the Sport Square area on top of the ship bright colors emphasize fun.
